Tasty and Close

Fresh Market Cafe is a neighborhood dinner with a dine in and a drive through. The food is good and the menu offers a large selection. The banana pudding is a must.

For what you pay, you do not get enough food. I never eat all of my food on my plate when I eat out because usually it is too much. Not here. Here I cleaned my plate and while the food was good We all went home and fixed a sandwich. Too much money for too little food.

Got take out of chicken dumplings. Family size. It was a little pricey. $27.00 I think for two quarts, but it was very good and kept me from getting kids out in weather. Would recommend this place for a casual family meal that feels homemade.

Large variety of home style cooking. Everything I have tried there has been great! Reasonably priced also.

It is not fast food, but a buffet style setting but the veggies are wonderful and their entrees are very suitable. Kinda pricey but it is definitely a full meal!

It's been awhile since our first and only visit. The name 'Fresh Market' implies fresh food made from scratch. I was disappointed to find a buffet style of your typical home cooking - some over cooked meats and veggies out of a can. Behind the front line looked dirty which is always a turnoff. No second chance for Fresh Market,

I am sorry that was your experience at Fresh Market Café. Somewhat confused though...was your last visit here Oct 2013 and posted a review one year later? Our vegetables are either fresh or fresh frozen and certainly not from a can. We also cook them in chicken and ham stocks and an in house bacon and onion mix as opposed... More

Arrived in drive through at 5:50 on a Monday I was second car in line but didn't get to the window until after 6:00 because of the slow service and they didn't take off the 20% that they advertise. I ordered the meatloaf which I have ordered many times before. It was very salty and tasted as if it were... More

Just don't tell my grandmother that lol. I'm not a pie person but if we go here to eat, I at least take a slice home. Their meatloaf is delicious. It's a little spicy but I love spicy food. There is a daily special from 4-6 which is perfect for my husband and I because it's on his way home... More

I live near this cafe so I use the drive through pretty often and to be honest, sometimes it's good and some days it's just average or a little below average, depending on who is working that day. The portions are generous, the desserts are chocolate pie, pecan pies, other items. Their food is meatloaf, fish, red beans/rice, roast and... More

Usual cafeteria fare but when you need vegetables and comfort food, this is a good place to go. Better than cooking at home but not as good as your mother cooked. Like their cornbread, meatloaf, fried okra, and pork chops. Discount if you go during happy hour.
